Rasei Fort Oud Cavaran fragrance
The Oud Cavaran fragrance by perfumer Rasei Fort takes inspiration from the famed caravans crossing the world’s greatest sea of sand. Swaying camels and shifting dunes in the Arabian Desert inspire a distinct signature of aromatic oud, wood and leather. This spicy, oriental composition provides an olfactive journey worthy of the Bedouin, whose tales have long been forgotten. Exclusively available from Scented Niche at K11 Musea, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2608 2205, and Fashion Walk, Causeway Bay, tel: 2608 2206.
Cartier Baignoire watch
Cartier first created the Baignoire watch in 1912 with a rectangular case rounded at the ends like a bathtub. The concept continued to evolve until 1958, with a so-called ‘curved oval’ watch. With its Roman numerals and curved crystal, this timeless model is now available in two new versions. The first celebrates pure elegance, with a ‘less is more’ approach. For the second, the emblematic oval is transformed into a bangle, a circle of gold – whether rose, yellow or paved with diamonds – to be slipped onto the wrist.
Harry Winston Forget-Me-Not collection
American jeweller Harry Winston spent his famed career reimagining nature’s splendour with the world’s most magnificent gemstones – a tradition that continues to this day. One of the most popular flowers in the brand’s bejewelled garden is the effervescent Forget-Me-Not. The Harry Winston designers have reimagined this captivating wildflower in an enchanting perennial collection of delicate jewellery. Nature’s beauty is expressed through round brilliant, pear-shaped and marquise diamonds.
Rado’s True Thinline x Gardens of the World collection
Since Rado and the Great Gardens of the World organisation began their collaboration in 2017, a whole new range of natural textures and shapes has found its way into the watchmaker’s work. Now, elements from three quite different plants bring visual rhythm to three individual dial designs for the True Thinline x Gardens of the World collection. Crafted in monobloc high-tech ceramic, Chapter 8 unites a polished black case with a matching dial; Chapter 9 is a brilliant white reflection of the monkey puzzle tree; and Chapter 10 depicts branches of the dragon blood tree in plasma grey.
Christian Louboutin’s Froufrou Alta platform sandals
Inspired by the flamenco tradition of Andalucia, the Flamencaba limited-edition capsule collection from Christian Louboutin embodies savoir-faire, passion and female empowerment. Requiring a high level of technical skill and an abundance of crepe satin, the Froufrou Alta platform sandals with 150mm heels are embellished with layered frills and a cascading ruffle. With a handcrafted oversized rose atop the toe, Sevillana lamé uppers, delicate straps and a 100mm stiletto heel, the Flora Queen sandals make an elegant standout on dance floors.
Blue Heart Crème de la Mer
The same combination of skin-soothing sea-sourced ingredients that powered La Mer ultra-rich cream to fame now come in a chic collectible jar.

Drop d’Issey Eau de Parfum Fraîche
Evoking fragrant blossoms in pools of water, A Drop d’Issey Eau de Parfum Fraîche is the new opus from Issey Miyake. It captures the journey of a raindrop in springtime from the moment it falls from the clouds. Each droplet reveals the facets of all the elements it encounters – grass, flowers, wood and more – for an uplifting and refreshing sensory experience. Designed by Todd Bracher, the distinctive drop-shaped flaçon similarly reflects nature in hues that graduate from blue to green.
